And I don’t imagine anyone here is one bit surprised.
But the Huffington Post is reporting today that: Donald Trump Has Stake In Hydroxychloroquine Drugmaker.
Trump “has a small personal financial interest” in Sanofi, the French drugmaker that makes Plaquenil, the brand-name version of hydroxychloroquine, The New York Times reported Monday.
In addition, Sanofi’s largest shareholders include a mutual fund company run by major Republican donor Ken Fisher, the paper said. Trump’s three family trusts, as of last year, each had investments in a mutual fund whose largest holding was Sanofi, according to the Times. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross also had ties to the drugmaker, the Times reported.
As social media has said: Always…always follow the money.
This is criminal…purely criminal…and I am not referring to the financial and ethical debt here. We already have one dead Trumpist who followed the president’s logic and took a commercial product instead of a pharmaceutical.
But it’s criminal because this drug isn’t safe for a lot or reasons. And apparent hoarding is creating a shortage that is impacting Americans who actually need the drug for other diseases like Lupus.
People are going to die. Die because they can’t get the drug for existing disease. Die because it has no proven efficacy as a prophylactic drug against the novel coronavirus. Die because one of the serious side effects kills them.
This is criminal. This is murder.
